- Really Understanding Layered Vanadyl Phosphate Hydrates
Hui-Lin Huang, Kwang-Hwa Lii and Sue-Lein Wang
Article first published online: 9 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jccs.201300520
This review provides an up-to date survey to the system of layered vanadyl phosphate hydrates with the V/P ratio of 1:1. This chemically simple VOPO4 composition is complex in intra- and interlayer structures. In the article, synthetic strategy, structure features, factors controlling interlayer spacing and density are discussed to fully understand these materials.
- Transitions between Electron Transporting Mechanisms in Molecular Junctions and Transistors
Chun-Ting Kuo, Li-Chen Su and Chun-hsien Chen
Article first published online: 9 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jccs.201300504
This mini-review provides an elementary introduction to the mechanisms of electron transport through molecular junctions. Emphasis is made on the elucidation of terminologies with literature examples and the comparison of the experimental conditions between the conductance pathways.
- Chemical Study on Protective Effect Against Hydroxyl-induced DNA Damage and Antioxidant Mechanism of Myricitrin

Myricitrin protects against hydroxyl-induced DNA oxidative damage via metal-chelating, and direct radical-scavenging which is through donating hydrogen (H·) and electron (e). For example, myricitrin can repair dAMP· (2′-deoxyadenosine-5′-monophosphate radical, a typical deoxynucleotide radical) via donating hydrogen (H·) and electron (e).
- Synthesis of β-Haloketones by β-Addition Reactions of α,β-Unsaturated Ketones with BX3 (X = Br, Cl) as Halide Source
Adam Shih-Yuan Lee, Shu-Huei Wang and Yu-Ting Chang
Article first published online: 9 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jccs.201300394
A series of β-bromoketones and β-chloroketones were synthesized by the addition reactions of α,β-unsaturated ketones under BX3 (X=Br, Cl) and ethylene glycol reaction system.
- Preparation of Pt@SnO2 Core-Shell Nanoparticles for Photocatalytic Degradation of Formaldehyde
Ya-Chin Chang, Cheng-Yu Yan and Ren-Jang Wu
Article first published online: 9 DEC 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jccs.201300272
We prepared a novel nanocomposite Pt@SnO2 materials as a photocatalyst, the average Pt core diameter was 7-10 nm in diameter, and the SnO2 shell was approximately 2 nm thick. Pt@SnO2 exhibited the greatest formaldehyde degradation efficiency of 93.2% during 18 W daylight illumination at room temperature.
